Show #24: Community Workshop and Training Center
CWTC, Peoria Area
Tim and Stacy talk with CWTC. This Central Illinois organization provides programs and services to adults with disabilities; enriching their quality of life, promoting social change, and optimizing their potential for independence. CWTC was founded in 1960 by a group of parents wanting to provide their adult age children job skills training and continuing educational opportunities. At that time, there were no services offered for adults with disabilities. Our organization started with 13 consumers and one staff member and now serves an average 875 individuals on an annual basis throughout central Illinois with a staff of 200.
